4.5 superbomnipanzer | September 21st 10

I feel kind of obliged to add a "mini" review of this album as no one else has and in all
fairness
it was the first album of there's I'd ever heard and the reason I eventually purchased the
rest of there albums.
IMHO:
After they're debut album the Violent femmes changed up there instrumentals and
subject
mater to a much more complex and mature sound. "Why Do Birds Sing" always felt to me much
like a move back to the album that made them famous (self titled). This album was a much
more upbeat sounding album with lyrics that kind of harkened back to being a young adult,
growing up, dealing with various types of relationships etc. I feel very confident that if
you like there first album you will like Why Do birds Sing more than any of there others.
